It's that time again....

Time to pull out your beakers and bunsen burners; it's time for Breaking Bad once again! Last week the final season kicked off with Walter White threatening Hank when he realized Hank knew about him being Heisenberg. I was at the edge of my seat at that moment, and I'm dying to know how this epic series is going to end. But until we find out, I'll enjoy the amazing Breaking Bad fashion that's come out of their amazing run on tv.

And if you want to buy that amazing sweatshirt for the show finale, you can find it here for only $31:

 Until the end, we'll all just be waiting in anticipation

Kesha Rose: Worth Drooling Over

Good morning lovelies. For those who haven't heard, Kesha, the singer and songwriter best known for her wild stage ensembles and even more wild interviews, has created her own jewelry line in a collaboration with jewelry artist Charles Albert. I was a bit skeptical when I heard about it since I also recently just found out that she created a headdress with her fan's teeth. Yes, you read that correctly, her fans unwanted leftover teeth. 

I nervously clicked on the link to her site, expecting to see her selling  actual teeth and other various body part pieces, but instead her jewelry line is actually.really amazing! The pieces are very affordable, ranging from $10 all the way up to $600, and they include colorful skulls, roses, lightening bolts and even a penis or two! They of course have a hint of that Kesha "I don't care attitude" mixed with a lot of glamorous earthy drama that actually makes the pieces very wearable. Well, you can judge that for yourself, but I know what I'll be buying myself for my birthday present...

Back to school gadgets: $50 or Less

Good Morning lovelies! School is right around the corner, and as the days grow shorter and the weather starts to marginally turn colder, it means that not only do you need the best outfits, but also, some really cool accessories for your necessary classroom gadgets!

Back to School Basics

$50 or less

I wish I had this amazing little device whenever I was working in the library and suddenly had to get up and go to the bathroom. This would've saved me so much headache and hassle having to pack up and then unpack my laptop and notebooks, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Otterbox phone cases are personally my favorite because I've dealt with them and have had my phone and seen other's phones saved by the box. I recommend it for everyone like me who is texting, stumbles, and down goes the phone right smack onto the tile floor.

This bad boy looks odd, but it's a necessary cooler for under your laptop. My laptop died from overheating, so I can not stress how important these are for extending the life and performance of one's sacred portable. Birthday present anyone?

National Elephant Appreciation Day

Good evening lovelies! Today was National Elephant Appreciation Day! For those who have never heard of it, it's the day where we celebrate the magnificent species that has survived for 50 million years on our beautiful planet. 

I am obsessed with elephants myself and love learning about them, as well as wearing beautiful pieces that showcase their amazing legacy. I've been told it's good luck if the trunk is up on whatever elephant-resembling item you own.

For those who don't much about this beautiful species, you can find out how to get involved and learn more by visiting this website:

Or you can read one of  my favorite books of all-time, Elephantoms, written by a man exploring the history and nature of this species, as well as including a beautiful retelling of his first encounter with one and his life thereafter:

Or you can show your love by wearing a beautiful piece like this that is functional yet fun and starts a conversation usually by way of "Are those elephants? That's so cute!" (I'm speaking from personal experience on that one)

Back to school best: $50 or less

Good morning lovelies! For everyone gearing up for next month when pencils and papers are a flurry and deadlines begin, then now is a critical time to make sure you have that amazing first-day outfit to make great impressions, and also to fall back on when you need to command attention for a presentation. I always get so excited for this time of year because for me it symbols to FINALLY break out the boots and jackets after a scorching hot summer.

Back to School Best

$50 or Less

Overall each piece is neutral, but it's the small details in each one, like the pattern of the dress, the platform of the oxfords, the lace paneling of the jacket, and the chain detail of the bag that are special. These things make an otherwise ordinary piece an amazing wardrobe staple that you'll live in. While this outfit may be a bit much for some, hopefully inspiration comes from these pieces for seriously sexy scholarly style.
